Kid’s at Work Day 2020

As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, Penn Manor elementary schools are planning a special day across the district. 

On Friday, February 21, 2020 students will be invited to wear clothing that would represent a career that they may be interested in exploring as an adult.  For example, your child may come dressed as a construction worker, doctor, teacher, etc.  Please make sure that your child’s clothing is appropriate for a day of learning and wouldn’t distract other students in his/her classroom. 

As an added component to the “Kids at Work” day, teachers and staff will be wearing their college, military, trade-school, or past/present career attire. Our hope is that “Kids at Work” day will be a great way to start conversations at home and at school about different types of careers, why someone chose a career, and what kind of training/schooling is needed to get started in a particular career.   To help facilitate discussion at home regarding career development, please click here for a helpful list of career activities.
